bonnie tahki



just came across this tahki stacy charles pattern that is verrrrry close to the gorgeous bonnie sweater i have been in love with since i first spotted it over at eunny's and stitch in my side. this would be a great fall sweater knit up in a yummy, soft merino or this, a beautiful new yarn that looks and feels like cashmere, but at a fraction of the cost. i'm picturing it in a rich fall color paired with a slim pencil skirt, tights and these grey suede booties just to shake things up.

(now, where i am going in this get-up, i have no idea. since i spend most of my days hunched over a keyboard in bermudas, t-shirt, and a tendonitis brace. just to shake things up, you see.)

Kate, girl, those SUbkoff's boots ARE haunting you for RRREAL!
I love the Bonnie Sweater, and I think some soft merino would work great for it, I actually love Eunny's version of that sweater, I think she used Cotton Fine by Brown sheep. Nice and cozy sweater for early fall , in smoking grey...
left daydreaming...

This pattern is really beautiful, a definite "Must-knit"! I agree, soft merino would be perfect for it!

Cute! That does look really similar, how funny. Those suede boots (bootlets?) are awesome!

Kate, Definitely cute - I like your style!
These yarns might work too:
Rowan Wool/Cotton (www.knitrowan.com/html/yarns_results_new.asp?groupcode=38&weight=null&spec=null&guage=null)
Karabella Aurora 8 or 4
Go for it!

It's somewhat similar to a IK pattern from a couple of years ago. I think... Let me dig it up and see...

I'm also working on a copy of this sweater with smocking instead of cables.
